Paultards R Smarter than U11111


In another attempt to explain their crushing defeat, the Paultards have reverted to a new strategy: Insist that no one understands them because they're just too damned intelligent. Yes, a group of people who can't even grasp the concept of random sampling are much smarter than you are. How do they know this? Because someone found a chart showing that some people have higher IQs than other people, so we can safely conclude that the people with higher IQs must be Ron Paul supporters. It's the sort perfectly sound logic you would come to expect from an intellectually superior individual.

Of course, the Paultards can't help but gush over their "discovery," and using that to rationalize their unhappiness and misery. It doesn't dawn on most of them that the bell curve is symmetrical and therefore goes both ways, that measuring IQ isn't the same thing as measuring an adherence to a specific ideology, and that bragging about your penis size IQ score doesn't hold much weight when you do it online.

Yeah, like those scientific random sampling polls that were blown away last night in NH. Looks like Obama didn't get a double-digit win over Hil, much less any win at all. Apparently at least one person can't even grasp the concept of human fallibility...or cell phones.

After reading the thread, all you have is a small *sample* of RP supporters with high IQs, and like to talk about it; bet you hope that's not a representative one, right? Don't know about an IQ test, but you've never taken the LSAT, or you'd never make the leap from "I'm a Ron Paul supporter, I am is smart," to "I'm a Ron Paul supporter, and we all have 2005 IQs." Oops?

"It's the sort perfectly sound logic you would come to expect from an intellectually superior individual."

Yeah, well, you've never met a smart person before, apparently, because the smarter someone is, the more likely they are to say something stupid. Like here, I'm going to assume you're intelligent, and you've set up a very, very simple straw man argument, and not one of those "I have to stare at the logic structure for a long time to figure out the flaw" either.

The polls were fine, the problem is the fact that the pundits didn't account for the undecided voters who were still deciding between the top tier candidates.
